Finally connected my century link mail to the newer Kindle Fire - the server names are, ports 110 and 587.

I don't have a Kindle but I think you go to the menu button, then accounts, hold your finger on the account you want to delete and a menu comes up. Hit delete account. I did this a year ago for my brother. We then added the account again and it worked fine. Still does. I may have started this discussion. Let me know. Lori

I am using a first gen fire and the outgoing mail does not work. I can reply to an email but not generate one. I can't figure out how to delete the email account and start over.

What does allow installation of new apps have to do with setting up email on the built in email app? You are not installing an app just inputting server info for your email account? Just curious as that seems weird you would need that setting to fix it. Mary

After a morning of wrestling with adding my email account to my new KFHD, I finally resolved the "cannot access server problem" by going into the new Kindle's device setting and turning on the "allow installation of new apps". I added the new email account, and it worked! Whew... I hope this helps someone else.

I set up email on a kindle fire also with century link. We have a qwestoffice email address. After about three days of error messages, I finally deleted the account and set it back up and it is now working perfectly. It didn't even lose the emails that we had already received. And, yes, the ports are 110 and 587.

I have used AOL with the email app and had no problem. I believe I had to use different servers settings than what I use with my email app on the computer. I googled and must have found the info within AOL some where, was mobile servers or something I had to use. Mary

Do you have the right in coming and out going servers? I know with my AOL mail I had to use different servers than what I use on the computer, had to use a mobile set up I think it was. Did you ask netzero about it? Mary

I bought a Kindle Fire HD 8.9" tablet in January 2013. I responded to the (automatic) email setup with Netzero information. The app allows me to read my email but that's all. I can't delete, reply, write or forward mail. The app reports no error and indicates the desired operation has been completed. However, checking it via the web indicates it is not performing. Deficient software.

I know when I set up aol and road runner email on my fire I couldn't use the same settings as the desktop, had to use mobile settings or some such if I remember right. Your email provider should know the right ones. Mary

I have used skitmail which is free and I liked it but I had to give up using a mail program on my fire because I couldn't find one that could be turned off so if I left the fire on and went to the desktop I couldn't get my mail on the desktop unless I shut the fire down. Mary

I was also having many problems with the Kindle Mail app. I downloaded and started using K-9 Mail which worked like a charm, but I didn't like the features as much as the Kindle Mail so after awhile I tried Kindle Mail again and low and behold it worked just fine. I have no idea what happened, but I can only guess Amazon is working on these problems and chiping away at them over time. Meanwhile, I suggest lighting a candle instead of cursing the darkness and just using an alternate email app. K-9 is a free app.

I have used my AOL address on the original fire with the built in email app and it works fine as long as it's set up properly. Have used it with a few other email apps in the app store and works with those also. Make sure are the pop servers and such are set correctly. I don't know, I got it to set up and work first time out of the box. Mary

AOL and Talk Talk insist it is the Kindle at fault, come on Amazon pull your finger out and issue genuine advice!!

Who is your email provider? Have you tried contacting them for help?. Mary

I am also having problems e-mailing from kindle fire, what are Amazon doing about it? I am not paying extra for what amazon should have provided

Well that's all I can think of is try with another program like skitmail. I have the first fire and didn't like the built in email app so found a free one in the app store I liked better. Maybe one of those will work better with q. Mary

Thanks...I did go ahead and set up gmail (which was a snap to set up on the Kindle) and am in the process of switching everything over to gmail. It is a tedious procedure tho and I was still hoping for a solution! Thanks for your input.

Oh sorry since you mentioned century link thought it was the same. I would think that if could be set up on an android device to begin with it would be the same set up. Have you tried another email app? Skitmail is a free one I have used and like. Now I prefer to just check my email online from my fire since I can't find an email app that can be turned off if I forget and leave my kindle on and get on the computer to use my mail program there.
